Technical forum / Re: Is Carrara 8 compatible?
« on: July 01, 2010, 10:16:58 PM »
I don't know about the current versions of Carrara, but I used it until v 6.0, and neither 3ds nor .x exporters were usable for WME then. 3ds didn't export cameras and lights, and .x lacked bone names and other things. So if you are going for 2.5d better get a demo version of Carrara before you buy the whole package.

You could use 2 pictures. But generally I don't think it's a good idea to use such freakin huge images at all.

"Nacht und Nebel". Hm. Sounds familiar or is it just coincidence?

I already released a small game under that name, "Beyond the Threshold" ~ 2 years ago in our first community contest here :-)

Howdy fellow Wintermutees! For quite a number of reasons (at least 4) project Dagon was on ice for the past ~2 years, however, 2013 sees the rebirth in new glory :-)

The project has been restarted from scratch, so the old screenshots etc are not reflecting the current state any more.

If you are interested, the latest information, screenshots and what not are on the main website:

Community bulletin board / Re: What do you hate about WME?
« on: January 12, 2010, 11:53:19 PM »
As I have just started to develop again after a long break, I haven't run into any showstoppers where I'd say the term "hate" would be justified anyhow, but some things I'd like to see:

1. Filters (blur, glow, dropshadow etc) for Sprites
2. A zoom-function for SceneEdit
3. More pre-build tools for WindowEdit (Sliders, Checkboxes etc)
4. More in-depth documentation for some topics like localisation, packaging

I had those kind of crashes very often a while ago, and it turned out to be malefunctioning ram. Crashes happened randomly in all sorts of applications though.

Are you going to create the 3d characters yourself?

Stolen things don't get legal just because you write something on them :-) They had no permission to distribute it, so under no circumstances they are allowed to, no matter what they write on the cd's.

If you want to use realtime 3d characters you can only use 3ds Max. Though, if you don't know what the single programs are good for, it might be better to stick with 2d sprites and try to learn Poser or Daz Studio.

Wow, I completely overread the part with the responses ... you can safely ignore my answer :-)

Maybe you already know them, but Al Lowe has put the design docs for some of his old Sierra-games online:

They will say: "We already hate your engine"  :D

Feature requests, suggestions / Re: Support vrml as alternative to 3ds?

Don't know about Collada, but as far as I know Blender has a stable working fbx-export.
